Hello, Ms. Manurung Thank you for consulting with us on HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the back that spreads to the arm does sometimes indicate a disturbance in the heart, but it should not be ignored that the pain can arise due to interference with the muscles, bones or ligaments that are located according to the appearance of the pain. Pain, aches and cramps in the back that extend to the arms can be caused by conditions such as:
Spinal arrangement that has the potential to cause HNP / Hernia Nucleus Pulposus
Muscle spasm that causes irritation of the nerves that are compressed muscles
Tendinitis / inflammation of the tendons
Because the causes are so diverse, so to be sure we recommend that you consult a neurologist. In addition to conducting clinical interviews, and physical examinations, it is likely that doctors will also conduct additional examinations such as CT Scan, or MRI that will give more accurate results. Because your father is a patient with a history of heart, the initial treatment medicines need to be careful when using them. It would be better if the initial handling of simple things like:
reduce physical activity that can worsen back pain
try to always sit in the right condition / not bent
in the use of pillows during sleep must be considered, at least the pillow should support the head to the shoulders.
not too often staring at gadgets or reading newspapers for too long
avoid sudden movements of the hands and shoulders
do light exercise in the morning and accompanied by proper heating and cooling
Thus we can convey, hopefully the information we convey can be useful for your father. thanks.
